Florida aquatic nurseries has developed a new strain of C. wendtii mi oya they have dubbed "florida sunset". The leaves have multiple shades of pink with a little white mixed in. It was a mutation that they duplicated thru tissue culture over and over again until they got a consistent strain.

The plant will be available later this year, but they are sending me samples, the first released to the public, this week. I am going to try and get some decent photos, I'm not a very good photographer.

FAN made two of these available for the auction at AGA. They went for incredibly high prices - as I recall close to $200 each.

Well I am surprised Ghazanfar didn't know it comes from Wendtii mi oya as opposed to just normal wendtii.

Well those people are going to feel pretty stupid now! They are selling for well under five dollars as far as I know. They will be released for commercial sale sometime within the next 30 to 60 days. I will have some this friday. I will sell them to anybody who wants them... not for 200 dollars either!

So how come nobody has been talking about these plants since the convention?

If you meant me, it is a Madagascar lace plant flower. Your picture looks like it would be the flower some other Aponogeton species.
